So we were late arriving. We had planned on arriving between 7 and 8, but we didn't sit down to eat dinner until 8pm. Unfortunately, we were eating in Sneem, which was still an hour away. Although we tried to call, the pubs phone was broken, so we couldn't get through. (We could hear Mary, but she couldn't hear us.) Long story short, Mary waited up for us (we arrived between 9:30 and 10), and was still very welcoming, even with the late hour!
She then offered us a slightly early breakfast, in order for us to make the trek to Portmagee to grab a boat trip to the Skelligs. Another huge plus!
The rooms were comfortable. We had a triple and double room, with the triple having and double and single bed, and the double having one double bed; perfect for our party. They view from the farmhouse was amazing! Eating breakfast and looking out onto the Irish scenery as the sun rose was a treat. And breakfast was wonderful, by the way.
The only downside, as mentioned, is that this B&B is quite out of the way. The address is Killorglin, but it's about 2 miles outside of Killorglin. There are signs, but sometimes hard to follow. (It didn't help that we were coming in so late, so we were looking for signs by headlights.) It's probably easier to find in the daylight.
That being said, the distance gives it some sort of attraction as well, as it's quiet, peaceful, and have I mentioned the great view?!?
I'd stay here again, and I'd recommend it to anyone in the Dingle/Kerry area!
